Across the country, growing numbers of newly granted refugees are being forced into homelessness as they are evicted from Home Office accommodation.

In response to this crisis, Christian homeless charity, Housing Justice, has recently launched the Refugee Lodgings Project in London which enables resident landlords to rent out their spare room to a refugee lodger for six months while they re-build their lives and find a more permanent home. Housing Justice supports both the lodger and the resident landlord, who is expected to charge rent in line with the Local Housing Allowance.
